The beauty of Audi’s new halo all-electric four-door coupe, the Audi e-tron GT, is in the details. Here are five unique features that speak to its standout design, innovative technology and expert craftsmanship.

A leather-free interior

For the first time in an Audi vehicle, a leather-free interior is standard on the Audi e-tron GT and the Audi RS e-tron GT. “In the past, a luxury car was defined by having as a bare minimum leather seats,” says Jason Santos, product manager, Audi Canada. “Now we’re seeing more interest in more sustainable materials.” Instead of leather, seating surfaces, headliners and other key touchpoints are upholstered in sustainable luxury materials like leatherette, Dinamica and Alcantara. Similarly, the carpets and floor mats are made from an upcycled material called Econyl. This unique textile – which is also used by top-tier fashion brands – is made from discarded fishing nets and industrial waste from textile and carpet production, and boasts the durability of nylon without the use of virgin materials.

A built-in valet

Audi’s Remote Parking Pilot takes the stress out of parking in tight spots by maneuvering the Audi e-tron GT in and out of spaces remotely. With a simple and intuitive interface via the myAudi smartphone app, simply push a few buttons and the Remote Parking Pilot takes over. The system controls the steering, acceleration and braking to safely and efficiently park your vehicle without any driver input, turning off the motor when its job is complete. When you’re ready to drive again, simply tap your app and Remote Parking Pilot will expertly valet your Audi back out to you. It’s easy, quick and stress-free parking every time.

Safety at every turn

Audi prioritizes safety by making a massive suite of driver assistance features standard on the Audi e-tron GT and Audi RS e-tron GT. You’ll find everything from Audi adaptive cruise control with Stop&Go, which maintains a safe distance between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead (even in stop and go traffic) to high-beam assist, which automatically turns on and off the high-beams depending on the oncoming traffic. There’s also Audi pre-sense 360 degree, lane departure warning, side assist and rear cross-traffic alert, to name but a few of the intelligent features designed to keep you safer on the road.

A unique profile

The Audi e-tron GT is designed to make a bold statement on the road. In pursuit of this, Audi’s designers pushed the cabin backwards to create a stunning side profile, with a rear door positioned close to the top of the rear wheel. This creates a sporty, dynamic look on the road and the sensation of movement, even at a standstill.

Curvaceous arches

Among the many standout features of the new Audi e-tron GT are quattro-inspired flared wheel arches that give it a muscular, powerful look while emphasizing the coupe’s all-wheel-drive capabilities. “The overhangs on the rear of the car are really wide on top of the wheel. Five years ago, it was impossible to have metal pieces produced like this,” says Felix Enciso, director of product planning at Audi Canada. But engineers at Audi’s Böllinger Höfe site, where the Audi e-tron GT and Audi RS e-tron GT are produced, have mastered the feat. Their efforts were clearly worth it.
